ShipWorks Tutorial – Adding a Barcode to a ShipWorks Template

ShipWorks can output any order related data that will print on invoices/packing slips, etc. in Barcode format. By converting, for instance, the Shipworks order number to Barcode format, customers can scan the barcode and the order number will be displayed in the quick search field on the main toolbar and Shipworks will display the specific order.

Adding the Barcode Font

To add support for Barcodes, you will need to download and install the Free 3 of 9 barcode font from the following URL:

http://www.barcodesinc.com/free-barcode-font/

Once downloaded, extract the contents of the zip file to your Desktop or some other convenient location.

Copy the files to the Windows Fonts folder: C:WindowsFonts

Adding the Barcode to your Template

Adding the barcode to your template requires you to specify the barcode font format inside an HTML <font> declaration. Any Order Data retrieved from Shipworks inside this declaration would be output in a barcode format.

To add a barcode for the order number to your template, add the following code wherever you would like the Barcode to appear.

<font style="font-family:Free 3 of 9; font-size:48pt;  font-weight:normal;">*<xsl:value-of select="//Order/Number"  />*</font> 

Other examples forthcoming.
